World Cup 2010, Netherlands Vs. Uruguay: Arjen Robben Head Dutch To 3-1 Lead

Any controversy surrounding their second goal will be forgotten if the Dutch maintain the two goal lead given to them by Arjen Robben's 73rd minute heard, taking a cross from the left flank and putting it near post to give the Netherlands a 3-1 lead.

The header came from near ten yards out, an easy finish even for a man who is not known for scoring with his head.  The right winger, near the middle of the area, headed the cross just inside the neat post  for the two goal lead.

The Netherlands maintain their 3-1 lead in the match's 85th minute.
